Supporting your Community

About the scheme

Dulux believes in the power of colour and is committed to making a positive difference to people's lives

2013 was a great year for the Let’s colour projects as Dulux continued to add colour to people’s lives up and down the county. In 2013 there were:

  • 117 Projects completed
  • 250,000 lives coloured

This year the Let's Colour Project is looking to colour Schools and Nurseries, Community Centres, Sports Clubs and Charities.

If you have a space that could do with a splash of colour why not join in by nominating a project? By entering, you could receive the paint you need to transform your space for free. Apply online here

The scheme. which initially launched back in 2000, allows us to give something back to the communities we serve - from schools to animal sanctuaries and churches to charities.

To date, we have given away almost half a million pounds worth of decorating products and we're not stopping there!

Got an idea? Can you think of a project within your local community that could benefit from a lick of paint? Renovation plans? Facilities need brightening up?
